    Great hostel. It was clean, staff were helpful, and it is a block from the main street so it is quiet and has a great view of the volcano. Also has a free shuttle that brings you to the "free" hot springs for an hour...More

    Me puede explicar alguien por qué después de dos años el manager se digna en contestarme? Y otra cosa, todavía recuerdo con horror dicho hostel y no volvería jamás. Las excusas del cansancio de los viajeros son bastante simples y lo que viví allí era fruto de la desorganización, la dejadez y la mala conservación de las instalaciones. Ni más ni menos. Además de qué me sirve que me respondan dos años después, para tener pesadillas??
